The Philadelphia Eagles have traded quarterback Donovan Mcnabb to the Washington Redskins for a 2010 second-round pick (No. 37 overall) and either a third- or fourth-round draft pick in 2011, the team announced Sunday.
"Donovan Mcnabb was more than a franchise quarterback for this team," said Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie in a statement. "He truly embodied all of the attributes of a great quarterback and of a great person. He has been an excellent representative of this organization and the entire National Football League both on and off the field.
"I look forward to honoring him as of the greatest Eagles of all-time and hopefully see in enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton one day. I wish Donovan and his beautiful family great health and joy for many, many years to come."
McNabb, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 1999 and a six-time Pro Bowl selection, is the franchise's all-time leader in every major passing category and has led them to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in 11 seasons in Philadelphia.
McNabb responded shortly after the announcement of the trade with a post on his Twitter account, saying "Anyone selling a house in Washington?"
